WR:CB Matchup Chart


EDGE Myles Garrett, Cleveland Browns

PFF Grade: 94.2

Garrett was utterly dominant in the Browns' win over the Indianapolis Colts, recording a pair of sacks and forcing a fumble on both — one of which resulted in a touchdown. On the field for 21 pass-rushing snaps, he posted a 23.8% pressure rate, adding a trio of hurries to those two sacks. He also blocked a field goal that led to a Browns field goal, so it’s not a stretch to say Garrett singlehandedly kept the Browns in the game.

QB Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens

PFF Grade: 89.7

Lamar Jackson is playing better than any other quarterback in football right now. He went 21-of-27 for 357 yards in a win over the Detroit Lions, making four big-time throws and no turnover-worthy plays. He was once again unstoppable throwing the ball beyond 10 yards, going 9-of-11 for 181 yards and two touchdowns on such plays. The Ravens barely needed to employ his rushing ability, but he still found the end zone on the ground.

WR Puka Nacua, Los Angeles Rams

PFF Grade: 88.7

Cooper Kupp might be back, but Puka Nacua proved in Week 7 that he can still put up huge numbers. On the field for 30 snaps as a pass-catcher, Nacua saw 12 targets, picking up 154 yards on eight receptions on his way to a 5.13 yards per route run average. Despite having an average depth of target of just 8.3 yards, he tallied five receptions of 15-plus yards.


CB Devon Witherspoon, Seattle Seahawks

PFF Grade: 83.3

The fifth overall selection in the 2023 NFL Draft continued to impress with another big showing, this time against the Arizona Cardinals. Targeted three times from 40 coverage snaps, Witherspoon didn’t allow a reception and recorded an interception, giving him a 0.0 NFL passer rating allowed in coverage for the game.


TE Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs

PFF Grade: 90.1

Kelce earned a 91.0 PFF receiving grade with a dominant showing on National Tight Ends Day. He picked up 179 yards on 12 receptions from 13 targets, giving him a 4.97 yards per route run average in the win over the Los Angeles Chargers. Five of his receptions went for at least 15 yards, and Patrick Mahomes favorite target found the end zone for the fourth time this season.
